My new favorite thing: Fried Sage

Have you fried sage leaves in coconut oil? I had not. Until this past weekend, when Highlander and I enjoyed them as a beautiful garnish on this superior soup. It's worth the little bit of trouble.
You need:
1 non-stick pan
1-2 tablespoons of organic coconut oil
Fresh sage leaves
Heat the oil and drop in a sage leaf. If it sizzles and curls a bit, your oil is just right. If it just lays there, you need more heat. If it burns and smokes, turn it down!
Lay out a couple of paper towels and fry the sage leaves for about 15 seconds each. Don't let them get brown! Carefully remove them with a fork and let them drain on the paper towel. These are great on any kind of fall soup.
I eat them like potato chips now. Is there any such thing as an overdose of sage? We shall see...
